'01 XCSP 600 Darting

My buddies '01 XCSP was Darting all over the place this weekend on the trails. His skags were at about 50% and are 6" in length. All other components appear to be tight and in line. I was wondering if a shorter carbide would help prevent this as he is always riding on trails and no powder. Thanks for the help.

They need replacing and stick with 6" if that was working well when they were new.

Re: '01 XCSP 600 Darting

I don't know how it handled new, he bought it two years ago and this weekend was the first chance he has had to ride (Michigan winters suck).

Check the toe-out. Measure from ski to ski 10" in front of the spindle, 10" to the rear of the spindle. I usually use the wearbar as the reference point, as it's consistent and in the middle of the ski. The front measurement should be 1/8" to 1/4" greater than the rear. Any toe in will contribute to darting.

When he replaces the carbides, consider going to dually carbides. They really cut down on darting.
